Klay Thompson scored 25 points on 10-of-16 shooting (including two threes) with two rebounds, three assists and one steal in the Warriors' 128-108 cakewalk win over the Kings on Monday.
Thompson and Co. barely looked like they were into the game and still got their numbers against a Kings team that looks overwhelmed with drama in the front office. Stephen Curry scored 12 points with 11 assists and three steals as he let others take charge, Draymond Green did his thing with six points, eight boards, four assists, three steals and two blocks, and Harrison Barnes wasn't really needed with eight points, eight boards and one steal in the blowout.

Klay Thompson hit 8-of-16 shots for 22 points, two rebounds, a steal, a block and four more 3-pointers as the Warriors finally saw their 16-game winning streak come to an end after a 105-98 loss at Memphis.

While you won't often hear Thompson's name in the MVP conversation, it should probably be included in a list that will include John Wall, Stephen Curry, Russell Westbrook, LeBron James, James Harden, Marc Gasol, Anthony Davis, Kyle Lowry and a few others. He's averaging 21.7 points, 3.7 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 1.3 steals, 0.9 blocks and 2.9 3-pointers on the season, with shooting percentages of 45 percent from the floor, 43 percent from downtown and 87 percent from the line. And for good measure, he's also averaging just 2.2 turnovers per game. Stud.

Klay Thompson made 10-of-21 from the field for 25 points during a 105-98 victory against the Mavericks on Saturday with five rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and five 3-pointers.

His game has become very well-rounded thanks to being on pace for career highs in points, boards, assists, blocks, steals, field goal percentage and free throw percentage. Thompson is posting first-round value on the season in standard fantasy leagues and that contract from the offseason looks just fine.
Dec 13 - 5:15 PM

Klay Thompson scored 24 points during a 112-102 win over the Bulls on Saturday with five rebounds, five assists, two steals, two blocks and two 3-pointers.

Stephen Curry only had 19 points and the pair was just 3-of-13 from beyond the arc tonight. Usually, this would spell trouble for the Warriors against a great team on the road, but Draymond Green saved the day. Curry had 19 points, six rebounds, seven assists, one steal and three turnovers. As for Thompson, he's doing a lot more than scoring these days, which explains why he has first round value right now.
Dec 6 - 11:39 PM

Klay Thompson made five triples on his way to 23 points against the Pelicans on Thursday with four rebounds, five assists, two steals, one block and two turnovers.

That's back-to-back games with five dimes and he seems like a lock to be over three per game after averaging just 2.2 in each of the last two seasons. The Warriors are passing the ball a ton and it's led to them having the most secondary (hockey) assists in the NBA. This obviously doesn't matter for Thompson much and he's currently holding top-10 value on the season in standard leagues.
Dec 5 - 1:41 AM

Klay Thompson (bruised quad) finished Tuesday's one-point victory over the Magic with 20 points, four 3-pointers, six rebounds, five assists, two steals and only one turnover.

He passed the 4,000-point threshold in the process, and continues to be one of the best fantasy values of the young season. He's currently flirting with first-round value thanks to averages of 20.9 points, 2.7 triples, 3.6 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 1.3 steals and 0.7 blocks, all with solid percentages. The Warriors' four-year, $70 million extension already looks like a very wise investment.
Dec 3 - 1:10 AM

Klay Thompson (quad) will be in the starting lineup on Tuesday vs. the Magic.

He participated in shootaround earlier in the day, so he must be feeling pretty good. Thompson's owners can plug him into their lineups with confidence as it appears that the quad contusion he had was relatively minor. Check back for an update after the game to see how his leg holds up but it does look like the coast is clear.
Dec 2 - 9:53 PM

Klay Thompson (right quad contusion) is being listed as questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Magic.

This injury is coming out of no where, however, Thompson was a full participant during shootaround so we'd consider him to be more on the probable side of questionable. Still, owners will want to check back for an official update as we draw closer to Tuesday's tip. If Thompson is unable to go, Leandro Barbosa, Shaun Livingston, and Brandon Rush would be in line for some extended minutes. Stay tuned.

Klay Thompson made just 7-of-22 from the field for 17 points with five rebounds, four assists, three steals, one block and three 3-pointers in 35 minutes against the Hornets on Friday.

He wasn't quite as aggressive tonight and settled for a lot of contested jumpers. Thompson is in a bit of a slump over his last five, averaging 17.4 points, 4.4 boards, 3.2 assists, 1.4 steals and 2.2 triples on 40.7 percent from the field. Those are still must-start numbers, obviously.
Nov 28 - 10:07 PM

Klay Thompson notched 24 points, three 3-pointers, four rebounds, three assists and one block in an impressive road win in Miami on Tuesday.

He sank 10-of-19 field goals overall and has now scored 20+ points in five of the Warriors' past seven games. Golden State is on auto-pilot with an offense that's racking up 106.5 points per game, and their 11-2 record has them just half a game behind the Grizzlies (13-2) in the Western Conference.
Nov 25 - 10:22 PM

Klay Thompson played only 29 minutes in Sunday's easy win vs. the Lakers, but he still finished with 18 points, two 3-pointers, three rebounds, three assists and a career-high three blocks.

Thompson and Steph Curry are living up to their 'Splash Brothers' nickname, and they're on pace to become the first teammates to average at least 24.0 points per game since Dwyane Wade and LeBron James did it in 2010-11. Thompson himself is averaging career-highs in every single category except rebounds (3.3), and congratulations are in order if you snagged him outside of the top-40 on draft day.
Nov 17 - 12:23 AM

Klay Thompson knocked down four 3-pointers in Saturday's win vs. Charlotte, finishing with 21 points, five assists, four boards, three steals and one block.

His contract isn't looking so bad after all as Thompson is showing that he was worth every penny of that $70 million extension. He and Stephen Curry have been arguably the best backcourt in the NBA this season and there are no signs of them slowing down anytime soon.
Nov 16 - 2:00 AM

Klay Thompson scored a game-high 25 points against the Nets on Thursday with four rebounds, two assists, two steals and four 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

He has nine treys in his last two games and he'll be in the hunt for the league lead with his teammate. Thompson's fantasy value is going to be in the top-25 range just because of all the treys.
Nov 14 - 2:10 AM

Klay Thompson (hand) returned in style on Tuesday, scoring a game-high 29 points on 9-of-17 shooting with five 3-pointers, five rebounds, four assists and one steal in 40 minutes of action vs. the Spurs.

Sunday's unexpected DNP was the first of Thompson's career and it's not a serious injury, as he proved with tonight's scoring display. He also made 6-of-6 free throws and is off to a terrific start this year, averaging 23.8 points, 2.6 triples, 2.6 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 1.0 steals and 0.8 blocks, all with excellent percentages.
Nov 12 - 1:33 AM

Klay Thompson (hand) will play in Tuesday's game against the Spurs.

This is great news for his owners as he only missed one game and this confirms that the injury was a minor one. Leandro Barbosa started for Thompson on Sunday but he can now be safely let go as he shifts back to the Warrior's bench. Get Thompson in all lineups and check back for updates after the game.
